S3 to Lambda via Notifications

Lab Introduction

S3 to Lambda via Notifications

Welcome to the S3 to Lambda via Notifications lab, provided by AWS. In this lab, you will learn how to set up a seamless integration between Amazon S3 and AWS Lambda using notifications. This integration allows you to trigger Lambda functions automatically whenever a new object is created or modified in an S3 bucket. By leveraging this powerful combination of services, you can automate various tasks, such as image processing, data transformation, and more.

This lab utilizes Terraform as the toolchain to provision and manage the necessary AWS resources. Terraform is an open-source infrastructure as code software tool that enables you to define and provision infrastructure resources in a declarative manner. The lab programming language used is HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language), which is specifically designed for writing infrastructure code. By following this lab, you will gain hands-on experience in using Terraform to create and configure the required resources for the S3 to Lambda integration, allowing you to easily replicate the setup in your own projects.
